suggestion of website and book - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Dear all,

I am a beginner in designing a RF Bandpass filter. :( As my assignment/project required me to design a RF bandpass filters for the receiver operating from 2110-2170MHz, i hope you all can suggest to me which websites and books suitable for me to learn how to design the required BPF. Hope for the reply soon, thank you. :lol:

Why would you build one when muRata and Epcos make every kind of SAW BPF under the sun for the UMTS bands?

:roll:

What kind of filter do you want to design, LC, microstrip? Here are couple of good books.

A page for LC design is here

Other design programs are here. You find something that helps.

Dear Tom,

The bandpass filter is used in 3G mobile transceiver, is it i am required to design a LC bandpass filter rather than microstrip type?

The book "Radio-Frequency Electronics'' by Jon B. Hagen suitable for me to learn how to design the bandpass filter? or the two books mentioned above are more suitable?

"shnt-bpf.mcd", what software is suitable to open the .mcd file?

Thanx for your reply, Tom. Thank you.
